Grandmaw's Silver and the Ice Bucket

Since I only have 3 dinner forks, I borrowed my Grandmaw's silver last weekend because I had weekend guests. She bought the silver while my Pawpaw was serving in World War II. Shopping always makes us feel better, right? :) I absolutely love her silver. It's vintage, girly, and it has such a great story behind it.









It matches my new dishes perfectly


Yay! Last week I received the monogrammed ice bucket from Dabney Lee that I won from Shore Aesthetic. I love it, it's so cute! Thank you so much Shore Aesthetic!

I love the ice bucket!! And your grandma's silver is beautiful, I love old silver. My grandma gave me her silver as a wedding present and we use it every day. I think of her at every meal because of her silver.
Enjoy it!!

Hi there! Thanks so much for the comment on my pic! It is definitely one of those "self portraits" that I cropped my arm out of! Ha!

You are so lucky to have such a beautiful collection of silverware in your family! I WISH I had something like that. Nothing can replace heirlooms like that! Lucky lady!
